Fall Makeup Trendspotting 2010: Chanel

For his latest collection, Les Contrastes, global creative director of Chanel Makeup, Peter Philips, pays tribute to the brand’s Joues Contraste blusher, with eyes and lips made to match, achieving “perfect harmony”. Soft smoky greys make the eyes are the focal point. The collection also features shimmering pigments of khaki and violet for the eyes. Dark, expertly groomed brows contrast against the luminous rosy complexion. Nude, glossy lips complete the look. Meet the collection:

    Don’t you just love the Chanel Holiday Collection?! It’s so elegant! To me, there’s nothing more classically beautiful than a smokey eye with a glossy nude lip. Gorgeous!
